OCT Youth Network – Social Media Post – 800×800

OCT Youth Network members are unveiled!

The European Commission has recently announced the 25 members of the OCT Youth Network.

Launched in May 2022 by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Partnerships (DG INTPA), the OCT Youth Network targets young people from the 13 OCTs aged between 20 and 28 and aims to give them an in-depth insight into the collaboration between the European Union and the OCTs (“EU-OCT partnership”) and the functioning of the European institutions, as well as providing an opportunity to networking with like-minded young people from other OCTs. The OCT Youth Network is built around a year-long programme, which includes a week-long study visit to Brussels, e-learning sessions and dialogue with EU political leaders.

For its first edition, the OCT Youth Network counts among its members 2 former OCTA trainees, Emma Poirier (Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon) and Nefa Lemo (Wallis and Futuna), as well as one participant of the OCTA Youth Week (October 2021), Kahalanie Haapa (French Polynesia).
